Dressing Like Adults
"Children have always played at dressing like adults. It's a natural phase in the development of their identities, but there has to be a limit," says psychologist Thalía Cuadrado.
"The test should be whether it's appropriate for their age level. For example, it's not physically healthy for little girls to wear heels so high they can barely walk in them. Or for little boys to wear clunky chains around their little necks or jeans so stiff and heavy they interfere with movement. That's when a parent should step in and stop it."
